Responding to an influx of alumni requests for more Alumni & Family Weekend (AFW) events featuring faculty, the Alumni Relations Office has announced plans to add departmental open houses to the upcoming weekend's schedule. The new opportunity will join the faculty reception and a selection of Core classes open to visitors during the annual gathering of alumni and families on Oct. 4-6.
"The faculty are a huge part of UD alumni's love for their alma mater," said Leah Looten BA '09, director of alumni and donor relations. "This open house will be a great opportunity for faculty to showcase their latest work and catch up with former students."
The Office of Alumni Relations will provide light refreshments for all participating departments. Faculty interested in hosting a departmental open house, currently scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 5, from 1-3 p.m., should contact Alumni Relations Officer Kate Bergez BA '11 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
AFW also includes special class reunions, the Distinguished Alumni Awards Dinner, Family Day on the Braniff Mall and more. A complete event schedule for the weekend is available here.
